The Iceberg Town
The 56 km long Ilulissat Icefjord that is filled with enormous icebergs from the most productive glacier in the northern hemisphere, Sermeq Kujalleq, is located in the center of Disco Bay and is on UNESCO's World Heritage List.
Ilulissat (Jakobshavn), in the West of Greenland, has become one of Greenland's biggest tourist destinations with its awe-inspiring scenery and dramatic sounds of glaciers breaking off into the sea.
From Ilulissat several tourist offices organise excursions and tours to the settlement of Oqaatsut/Rodebay, to Eqi glacier, where it is possible to spend a couple of days in a hut, and to one of the oldest settlements in Greenland, Ilimanaq, south of Ilulissat Icefjord.
Dog sled trips
Ilulissat, where there are 4,500 people living today and at least 3,500 sled dogs, is also known as the "SledDog Town" and dog sled trips are highly popular among visitors. To this day dogsledding is still used by the locals as a way of transportation as well as an hobby.
